Red Bull Ball Park Cranks

Baseball -- that's the one with the round white ball with laces on it, yes? That's about the extent of what I know about it but many (most?) people have more interest in baseball than I do.

Those people probably know who Jimmy Rollins is. Red Bull Ball Park Cranks, sponsored by Red Bull, apparently a beverage the young fry like these days, is bringing Rollins to Philadelphia next month:

Not stopping there, Rollins will also attempt to break the current Guinness World Record for ‘Longest Batted Ball’, which currently stands at 576 feet. The record is for the greatest distance one individual can hit a batted baseball in a legal manner with no restriction on equipment.

The free event will be held June 27th, 11:45 to 1:00, over the lunch hour. You can read more online.
